* Meets University General Education Requirement .
1 CHEM 130  is a prerequisite/corequisite to BIOL 140 , therefore a student selects CHEM 120 -CHEM 130  and BIOL 130 -BIOL 140 ; otherwise the student must elect CHEM 100 -CHEM 110  and BIOL 101 -BIOL 102 . BIOL 111 -BIOL 112  has no chemistry prerequisite.
2 AGEC 201  (4) or ECON 201  (4) satisfies the University General Education–Social Science requirement and the major requirement for economics. If the student transfers ECON LD for 3 credits, it will satisfy the major requirement but will not satisfy the General Education–Social Sciences requirement. In these cases, the student should take two courses from the Social Science list.
3 Choose from the University General Education list .
4 One of the University General Education Electives, Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Electives or Free Electives must be a Communicating through Writing (WC) course . Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Electives may be selected from any courses in the college that are not already required for the major. Free electives may be selected from any courses not already required for the major.
